You might feel like you have to be productive during this period. You
are at home all the time, and you still have to do a lot of things. If you’re a
business owner, you also have a lot on your plate even if your company is not in
full operations. The truth is that there’s no need for you to be as productive
as everyone else. You can find a way to manage your time, and it should include
moments for relaxation and unwinding.
You don’t do it all the time
During regular days, you don’t even give yourself enough time to pause.
You keep on moving forward because you want
to grow your business. You also think that everyone else is relying on you.
There are times when you already feel exhausted, but you still keep working
hard. Now that you have nothing to do, you should find a way to relax. If the
economy reopens and you have to resume operations, you will regret that you
didn’t use this opportunity to relax.
You will face more pressure later
Since your business isn’t getting any profit over the last several
weeks, things will be intense once the economy reopens. You might even have to
work longer than you used to. You want to rest as much as possible now so that
you will have the energy to face future battles. Several businesses wouldn’t
survive even if things get back to normal, and you want to be among those who
will make it.
Spend time with your family
You don’t work hard for yourself. You do it for your family. The problem
is that when you work too much, you no longer have enough time for the people
you love. Now is an excellent opportunity for you to be there for them. Find
some fun activities that you can do with your children. You can also start a
new hobby or learn a new skill with them. These are some of the most wonderful
moments that your children want from you but you are unable to provide if
you’re always busy. Reaching the peak of success wouldn’t mean anything if you
already lost the love and trust of your children.
Start a sustainable routine
You can do whatever you want now because you don’t have a lot to do. You
can learn how to cook or exercise more often. However, if you have excellent
practices being started now, you should continue doing them even if things
get back to normal. If you are already doing some exercise routines at
home, you need to keep them up.
Although a lot of negative things happened as a result of this lockdown
policy, it also taught us to relax. In a snap, our lives could change.
Everything that we think of as necessary might not be that important. We are
also learning that even if we only stick to the basics, we can still survive.
Most of all, it teaches us that we should give ourselves time to rest.
